i said it before but listen to 2:22 on the zimmerman recording to the police.

link is in the OP. at 2:22 you can hear him say F*cking coons.
Well Geraldo says we can wear them in the rain (which btw it was raining that day, shows how little research they do at Fox) and at track and field events, anywhere else and we ALLOW ourselves to be presumed gangstas and thus our own fault if we are shot and killed even while minding our own business.

It reminds me a lot of the "you wouldn't have gotten raped if you weren't dressed like that," argument you hear sometimes directed at females.


Yea you're right, directed my response at the wrong person.

Yeah, it's crazy and wilder that you got more understanding of how backward everything is than Bmulls does and he lives in the States.

I wonder how many crimes before the assault on zimmerman that this gangster committed. Sounds like he was harassing zimmerman for months

I think Geraldo isnt blaming the victim... but his thinking is just pure cowardice that some minorities adopt, thinking it will buy them some peace.

The guy would have followed this kid regardless of what he was wearing. Telling your kids not to wear a piece of clothing because somebody might be irrational over it put the responsibility on the kid to manage someone else's behavior.

Hoodie or no hoodie, Zimmerman was gonna stalk this kid and something bad was going to happen... Looking at this guy's past behavior, you can see it plain as day. Eventually Zimmerman was going to either kill someone or get himself killed..

Geraldo shouldnt expect kids to have to shoulder that responsibilty... they cannot control that

The guy murdered the kid. This could potentially be a hate crime too. I hope he goes to prison for a long time, that guy killed a unarmed kid. This guy wasn't even a cop was he?

If he was black he'd be in jail.

The so-called "suspicious" looking kid was an A and B student without a criminal record born in '95. Zimmerman of all people had a charge against him in 2005 of battery on a police officer. Zimmerman was also accused of domestic violence by an ex-girlfriend, she also filed for a restraining order against him..

Who is Zimmerman to label this kid as a criminal for wearing a hoodie... when it rains outside and then stalk him and continue to stalk him after Trayvon tried to run away and then get out of his car with a gun is his hands. And even if Trayvon beat him up before getting shot and killed, who wouldn't when this lunatic acted the way he did..

Put him jail already..

I like how only black people are scary when they wear hoodies lol. Dude acts like he was wearing a du rag, wifebeater, and a red bandana hanging from his pocket.

Good info

They need to drop Zimmerman in between a Syrian war or something. Let him get needle, h*** lock him in a cage with a lion.

I wouldn't pursue the hate crime angle though as that's harder to prove, the "****ing coon" might help but even that is really unclear.

But murder, easily. You could just go off the 911 calls that police didn't listen to and ascertain that and shut down the "self defense/stand your ground" claims. Add to that the 2 females witness testimony (same one who in her 911 call you can hear someone screaming for help, gunshot, screaming stops), and Trayvon's girlfriend's account of their final conversation. The defense would be left with character witnesses (like the ones they keep showing on CNN) and trying to magnify that Zimmerman might have had a cut on his face and back of his head. In most states, would be a slam dunk.

Sanford police dropped the ball too letting Zimmerman go home with the same bloody shirt on from the confrontation, tons of potential forensic evidence gone to shit because certainly first thing Zimmerman did was dispose of or wash it.

What cluster**** this case has become. Giraldo should be forced to shave his shitty stache because we all know men with staches like that are Pedos and 70s Porn stars.
